Anaya Bakari belongs to Ondo. Anaya is studying in American University of Nigeria (AUN). She tells about her university that American University of Nigeria (AUN) is the first American university ever to be established in Nigeria. With David Huwiler as its founding president, it was commissioned by the Nigerian Vice President Atiku Abubakar, and founded in partnership with the American University in Washington, D.C.
Anaya more tells that American University of Nigeria was created in response to the demand for high-quality, American-style higher education in West Africa. Each year, thousands of West African families send their sons and daughters to universities in the United States. Many of these students would prefer to study here, in Nigeria, if a comparable education were available. Well Anaya thank you very much for joining us. We wish you best of luch for your future.
The models at fashion Oluchi Onweagba, a Nigerian model who has been at the top of the international circuit for more than a decade Oluchi, whose first name in her native Igbo language means “God’s work,” was born in the Nigerian commercial capital of Lagos. Her father was a civil servant, and her mother was a nurse. In Nigeria, her name means “Work of God.” Her parents proudly gave birth to this fashion icon in the city Lagos. Before her rise in the international fashion industry, her tall and thin frame once earned her cruel nicknames at school.
“In Africa, beauty is more then a physical attribute, it’s a way of life.” M-Net, Africa’s premier network, launched a search for the face of Africa who will embody the beauty and dignity of the continent. Nineteen countries would participate. Once qualified in Lagos, Oluchi left Ghana victorious in a stunning achievement of natural ability. Despite her initial questions and doubts, Oluchi’s real journey began as she greeted this opportunity and called it her destiny. In Zimbabwe, after an intense question and answer period, twelve contestants stood on the final stage. Oluchi’s name rang out as the official Face of Africa.
As one of the top ten busiest models in New York, Oluchi diligently pursues her business degree from New York University. All the while launching her O-Model Management in Johannesburg and another office in Cape Town. An entrepreneur at heart, she plans to expand her modeling agency throughout Africa. As her career took off, she did not forget her roots and attempted to give back to society. As one of the most high profile international models of Nigerian origin, she tries to serve as a role model for other aspiring talents in the West African country, especially young girls. She volunteers her time and her image for such NGOs as LEAP Africa (an entrepreneurship incubator) and NIPRO. She also is continuing her higher education, having studied for an associate’s degree in the New York City educational system.
